Book Description

Oct. 30 2003 1401835708 978-1401835705 1
PERFECT FOR NEW AND SEASONED EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATORS, CAREGIVERS AND STUDENTS ALIKE, this resource covers the spectrum of conditions, disabilities, syndromes and other types of developmental differences that teachers and caregivers may encounter in children from infancy through age eight. For each disability or condition, a very concise definition is presented in straightforward language. Following the definition is a wealth of information in an easy-to-follow column format. The first column details observable behaviors, symptoms, and physical characteristics associated with the condition; the second presents a list of alternative conditions, behaviors and symptoms which may be similar but indicate a different root cause; and, the third column is dedicated to recommendations about how to work with a child who fits the profile of this disability or condition. Particular emphasis is placed on finding effective ways to include the children with special needs in the group. Suggested Web sites at the end of each section offer further opportunity for research.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well organized, easy to use reference Aug. 10 2000
Format:Spiral-bound
This book offers much needed support to child care providers who are caring for special needs children or who wonder whether the child they are caring for has a special need. It is designed in an easy to use format: 33 exceptionalities are included (such as asthma, epilepsy, learning disabilities, abuse, etc.) with 3-5 pages of information on each one. The layout is in chart form with a spiral binding, so the book can be left open to the exceptionality you wish to review. Under each category the authors address the following: Behavioral Characteristics, What Else Could It Be?, and Recommendations. Additional resources are provided at the end of each category.

This chart provides insight to MANY different special needs, from HIV, ADHD, FASD, Hearing loss and more. Looking at the chart I realized I fit many of the symptoms and behaviours of someone with hearing loss. I got a hearing test, and the doctor told me I have mild hearing loss and am being recommended to a specialist. This chart is very easy to read and as an Early Childhood Educator I know this chart will be useful for years to come. I love it.

Amazon was very quick with delivery and the book was unharmed, which was good for being a soft back spiral bound book.
